About Ikaria Holdings, Inc.

1. INOmax should not be used in the treatment of neonates known to be dependent on right-to-left shunting of blood. Abrupt discontinuation of INOmax may lead to a worsening condition. Methemoglobinemia is a dose-dependent side effect of inhaled nitric oxide therapy. Nitrogen dioxide (NO2) forms rapidly in gas mixtures containing nitric oxide and oxygen, thus may cause airway inflammation and damage. Methemoglobin, NO2, and Fi2 should be monitored during nitric oxide administration.
